Obituary for Annie Jennie Deleff

Annie Jennie (Jean) was born in Monitor, AB September 3, 1923 to Alexander Tweed and Irma Bridgett McConnell. Jean (as she was known) had 2 sisters Margaret born in 1919 and Georgia born in 1926. The family spent their entire life raising sheep at the same ranch, southeast of Monitor. Jean went to school at Stonelaw School and most of the time she rode a horse or drove a buggy to school. After her school days she worked for several local families and then on December 2, 1943 on a cold blizzarding day she married Zahary (Harry Deleff). They went on to have 7 children: Kenneth Deceased (Johanna); Carolyn (Johanna’s Daughter) Shirley (Orville) Ulry; Kevin (Lori), Cheryl Diane (Clark) Fawcett; Jeannette (Michael), Jacqui (Trent), Joelle (Jason) H. James (Lynn) Deleff; Kenneth (Darcie), Robert (Bev), Micheal, Jesse, Bradley (Hanna) Susanne (Garry) Franchuk; Melanie (Matt), Trevor (Emma), Miranda Donald (Kathy) Deleff; Melissa, Nicholas Thomas Deleff (Geraldine); Jeromy, Joshua, Nikolai 30 Great Grandchildren Jean is survived by her sister Margaret Parkin, sisters-in-law Dorothy Deleff, Lillian Warren; brothers-in-law Alex and Marin Deleff; daughter-in-law Yvette; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends. Jean was predeceased by her son Ken in 1974; father Tweed in 1981, mother Irma in 1982; husband Harry in 1997; son-in-law Randy Ekencrantz in 2009; sister Georgia in 2012; brothers-in-law Bert Parkin, Vasil Deleff, Ed (Shirley) Deleff, Charlie Jarrett; Sisters-in-law, Helen (Alec) Murray, Jennie Deleff, Isabelle Deleff; Nephews, Bruce Deleff, Leslie Jarrett; niece Marie Fooks. Jean enjoyed nature, both feathered and furry. Her kind nature took in many a stray. The farm kept her busy both in the house and field, garden and barn. No greater time was had by any of the grandchildren or greta grandchildren, than when they got to go to grandma Jean’s. Jean will be greatly missed. Knowing that Mom is no longer in pain lessens our sorrow and gives us a sense of peace.
